Kinda wish i had a Cabrio... but at the same time, kinda glad I don't.
Only thing I can say I truly don't like is the intrusion of dirt ,grass and other floaty stuff while the top is down , cleaning the interior is a "must do" each time I go out .

have you thought about getting a ceramic coating on your interior and your cloth roof? things like Ceramic Pro or GTtech?

I'm sure that would help protect the fabric from exposure to the extra dirt of a soft top vehicle . I'll check into that .

I love the orange interior details, 1stiski. Goes so well with the rest of the car. The black wheels look wicked too. Your car rocks!

We'll done! 1stiski, Very clean 453. I never had much interest in a convertible car, then I got my first Smart cabrio and now I'm already onto my 2nd Cabrio. When I talk about my smart with anyone I now say, "I can't see myself driving any other smart car unless it's a convertible". I Love being able to drop the top at any time, and pretty much any speed ;).

1staski, any future mods. in store? Also, I need to look into that ceramic coating as well, I drop the top multiple times a day and the gray cloth liner is already turning colors from all the outside dust.

Once again, very sweet cabrio.

Cheers!

No actual plans for anymore upgrades , actually can’t think of anything else that needs to be changed . In its current form , I’m happy. I rarely listen to the radio because the Bonalume blow off valve is sweet music to my ears .

Thank you . It’s such a fun car to drive , I never get tired of how it performs . It’s so sad that Smart didn’t offer more performance enhanced fortwo’s in the USA for our consumption . The limited models and access to such fun was their huge mistake .

Oh man, and I passed on the Bonalume blow off valve. I was supposed to have the BOV installed the same time as my Maxpower ECM but was a little worried with some of the reviews regarding BOV's so declined at that time. I'm scheduled for Carlsson lowering springs so maybe there is still hope for the BOV.

It’s an easy install although there isn’t a bunch of room for 6’2” man hands but I got it installed . I have the Lorinser power pack and there has been no ill effects what so ever . It only opens the valve to the outside vs dumping it back into the air box . It’s nice that depending on how aggressive you put the torque to the wheels it can be very quiet or woosh !!! ..
